I have some sad news for today. We had to come back home today because my wife's father died at 2:00 am. I'll be back tomorrow.

I spent most of yesterday wiring a new 7 pin connector to the Ford. It had only a 4 pin,,

I could not get the thing to work!! Took hours of re-wiring, checking connections and fuses on both ends, and so on. Frustrating as heck.
I finally walked away , went on some errands. When I got back I thought I would disconnect a few of the wires and re-connect them.
With Shannon watching the lights for a flash--- I tried grounding in a few spots...lo and behold. Drilled a hole attached the ground and all is well. Phew! I even had stopped at Harbor Freight and purchased a portable light set. Probably a good back up for future...ahem..projects,,,,

May God rest his soul in perfect peace, and give strength to your family to bear this immense loss.

Alan, I had the same problem with my Bambi II. Bad ground. Removed the wire, took sand paper to the rusty area and reattached the wire. Bingo, had lights.

So sorry to hear of your family's loss.


On a lighter note, weather looks good for personal watercraft this weekend and unless they won't crank on the driveway, we're bringin 'em up with us. (Bring your bathing suit if ya wanna ride!) (Maybe your wetsuit)

Adult beverage sounds good. What time and where? Guitar invited? I wonder if Thor's operational...
